WOW! Wonder, Observe, and Write
Each day, we make time for a WOW! Moment.
Each child receives an OWLS folder with helpful resources for writing about their nature experiences and for organizing their materials and works and a personalized OWLS notebook for organizing their works and recording their observations.
2022-2023 Literacy Projects
OWLS Class Book
We worked diligently to write a book about our program and students. The children helped write the introduction.
We presented and shared our book with our families during a special family visit hour before Fall Break.

2022-2023 Animal Research Reports
The children spent time developing their skills with researching and learning from a variety of trusted sources in order to construct a multi paragraph essay with an introduction, a body paragraph that helps us all learn more about an animals habitat, diet, characteristics, another body paragraph on interesting facts and an ending paragraph/conclusion.
OWLS Daily Schedule
Home Study Connections
Monthly invoicing is based on a daily rate of $100.
Monthly invoices will vary by the amount of days a student attends per week, as well as, how many program days are in that month.
Monthly invoices are sent out on the 1st and due on the 15th of that month unless paying with school funds from Hickman or Connecting Waters Charter Schools.
Charter school invoices are submitted at the end of the month. Charter students may attend after purchase orders have been issued from the school. After all monthly classes have been attended, an invoice is submitted to the school.
I am currently in the process of applying for grants to provide scholarships.
